The second of three Super Famicom SaGa’s to never hit American shores, this soundtrack is held in high regards by many Ito fans for its more dramatic themes, as well as the lighter pieces. It uses the two trademark Uematsu tracks from the original SaGa for Gameboy, it has a 6 minute prologue, an 8 minute ending, and some very nice synth for its time.
Personally, I do not have too much a fondness for this soundtrack (most likely due to the fact that I never have and never will get to play this fine game, so nostalgia factor is zero). Even so, I cannot help but admire the medieval/rennaissance style composition that makes this soundtrack as great as it is.
Unlike Romancing SaGa 1 and 3, this soundtrack does not have a list of character themes as tracks. This makes me happy, because I like town and dungeon themes more. While I’m on this subject, I’d like to address the idea of “skippable” tracks. While no track on here is amazing, there is not much difference in quality, they are all at least fairly good. Because of this, I never feel the need to skip a track when listening to this soundtrack. This quality is to be admired.
The NTCP print of the RS2 OSV can still be purchased at many online retailers for a reasonable price.
